Owner description: Neighborhood encompassing St. Catherine East and its side streets, home to Montreal's gay and lesbian community.

Always a great spot in Montreal especially in the summer time when the street is open for pedestrians only, nice terraces filled with people and an overall good joie de vivre feeling. The only downside is the poverty in some parts and the feeling you're unsafe around the Berri area where homeless people outnumber those passing by. Too bad for such a nice city!

In the summer, the Main Street is covered by a pink parade of color. It is impossible to miss it. Find a restaurant on the street sitting outside and enjoy a meal and people watching. Once of the best people watching place in North America. Probably THE best Gay street in the world (have been to many gay neighborhoods around the world). Worth the trip and spending time.

We walked through Montreal's gay village one Friday in May. They were busy hanging lights and streamers above the street, from side to side, even though there was a light rain. Not too much foot traffic. It was about 11 a.m. and there was a bit of precipitation. Lots of interesting shops. Rainbow colors everywhere. We ate lunch at a place called Rebel. It was very good.

I stumbled across this area on accident and did not realise it would be so large!! I came when all the streets were blocked off and loved just walking up and down the main road. I found it to be clean with rainbow flags flying everywhere. A lot of middle aged men and women (mainly men) out walking dogs and holding hands. It felt like a safe atmosphere. I'm keen to go to one of the bars and see what the night scene is like.
